Sample Award Letter

Dear Andy:

Congratulations on receiving the March award for best Team Work Champion. As you know, this is an award that is provided by coworkers to the team member whom they believe contributed the most to their success during the month.

Various nominations said that you went out of your way to help other employees with their parts of the project. Several coworkers said that you were unfailingly cheerful, upbeat, and positive even when the team struggled with delivery dates.

Additionally, team members said that you were organized, efficient, and that you worked hard on the right things. They were impressed with the amount you accomplished in a day. Team members especially appreciated the leadership role that you assumed when the team struggled with direction and resources.

All in all, you received the majority of the nominations. So, it gives me great pleasure to notify you that you have been selected as Team Work Champion.

The award recipient receives a $100 gift certificate to your local grocery superstore. Please let us know your store of choice. You will receive your award at the April Company Meeting so that the rest of the staff has the opportunity to recognize you and thank you for your hard work and consistent effort. Please let me know your store of choice.

This letter brings you my warmest congratulations, too. It is an honor to be selected for this award by team mates. It speaks highly about how well you and your work are perceived in the company. It is a positive contribution that deserves our recognition. I am proud to say that you are a valued member of our department.

Please let me know if you have questions or need additional information.

Warm regards,

Written Signature

Robert S. Meyer

Director, Marketing and Customer Outreach
